    How Old Are You

    I am 37 fishing since 5. tying flys at age 10. Have twin boys just turned 3 on the 13th. Had them fishing on there first birthday. Each got there first fish (blue gills) I let them use open face Ice fishing rods they loved it. Hoping I can teach them to cast this year and not just reel in. It gets a little dangerous when they are useing there cane poles (they think there fly rods trying to cast like me) so a couple more years with ice fishing rods. Just saying it's never to early to start kids fishing I have a 3 month old boy now hoping he can learn to reel in buy the end of summer. But it's up to us adults to get kids fishing or just outdoors and away from the tv/games/gangs what ever it may be. Are sportsmans club here in Pa does a fishing tourney every year for the iner city kids and 1 for local kids we work with the churches and shelters and bus the kids to the club last year 160 iner city kids between ages 5-16 got to fish. Some never been out of the city before or seen a fish Didnt matter where in the city they were from that 1 day they all had 1 thing in common being kids and catching fish. I dont know were everone is from but get your clubs and or churches involved 1 day a year and give some kids a memory of a lifetime that they would not of had otherwise. Good fishing and tying everyone.
